OK I have ordered my seeds. And planned our garden for this year. I still have parsley, oregano and radishes growing in the cold frames. We did get some greens from the cold frames as well this year.

I might be a loser if...

...I totally geek out when other people post their seed lists.

I forgot to add your okra to my list! Off to fix that...

Thank you for the inspiration! I haven't had a garden for years. After reading your post, I can't resist planting my biggest garden ever this year. Here's the link to my post about your blog.
